SNC Sign Board





My first attempt in some new techniques used for this sign board. The huge board is a MDF board. First I spread PVA glue all over the board, then I crumpled some tissue and pat it on the PVA to create a wrinkled texture. (In case you girls are wondering, I tested the tissue and its acid free!). After its dry I spread one layer of gesso on the board. Then I painted the board an antique white colour. Finally I pat some distressing ink on the board (I used Mahogany, Broken China and Antique Linen) and I spritz some water using SNC's spray onto the ink. I then use a transparency sheet to smear the ink and mix the ink, creating unique colour patches. For the final touch, I used Making Memories Sunflower acrylic paint and pat it all over with a sponge.
I found Basic Grey's Periphery Paper with the birds and cut it out to adhere on the board. Lastly, after adhering everything, I distressed the edges with more distressing ink and acrylic paint!
Supplies used: MDF Board, Plaid Wooden Alphabets, Gesso, Acrylic Paint, PVA Glue, Tissue, Distressed Inks, Ribbons, Patterned Paper, Transparency, Sponge Daubers.
